Community Fund gives out thousands of pounds for residents whose homes has been flooded.

The launch of the Somerset Community Foundation has launched an Emergency Flood Relief Fund this week. 

It has been helped by a £50,000 donation from Somerset County Council. 

The Foundation says the fund is currently open to anyone whose home has been flooded, alleviating the immediate financial hardship they may be experiencing. 

Normally, they give out money for people to cope with winter, but now want to increase the fund as the county has been devestated by the flooding once again.
